Like many others, I read the reviews of this tour when researching and I could not agree more with the excellent rating! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the wineries selected were great. My husband and I learned a lot about the Chianti region and enjoyed some of the best wine, food, and olive oil I've ever had... More

After reading the reviews raving about this tour, we were not disappointed! The wineries were gorgeous and the staff exceptionally warm and friendly! The wine was great and the lunch had a delicious local touch. The small group was also perfect and we ended having a blast. Definitely recommend it--Make sure to go thirsty and hungry for a delicious day... More

My wife and I booked the classic Chianti tour to have an escape to the country aide and were not dissapointed. We started of the day with one hour at the wine school where they thought us how to better taste and appreciate wine and some history on tuscan wines (which was great because we didn't had much experience tasting...

I was visiting my girlfriend who is living in Florence for the spring semester and we really wanted to do a tuscan wine tour. It was absolutely perfect and well worth it. Since it was my last day visiting the half day tour was great. It started with a brief introduction of wine and how its made, and we then... More

f you're a wine enthusiast or a tourist wanting to explore the wines of Tuscany, I highly suggest taking one of the classes on offer. We registered for the Tuscan Wine Classics class and I think it was a good introduction to understanding the extremely complex Italian wine world. Of course, we got to try all the important wines of... More

I took the Chianti Classico tour in October 2013 with Ilaria, a wonderfully knowledgeable and enchanting wine tour guide. It was truly one of the highlights of my time in Florence. We had beautiful weather, visited two boutique wineries where we tasted some wines you probably won't find outside of Tuscany (including a 2001 Chianti!), and had lunch at Dario... More

We booked this tour 3 weeks prior to our trip. We met this morning with another couple at the wine school and were introduced to Rebecca. She was very educated on the local wines and began our session with a basic wine/wine tasting overview. We headed out to two seperate wineries for tours, tastings, lunch and informative discussion. We were... More

We signed up for a half day tour and it was great. Actually it was freezing and windy and we still had such a nice time at 2 vineyards following a short wine class at the wine school. We got to drink lots of delicious wine, had a good light lunch, purchased some wines at reasonable prices with no pressure... More

I took both level 1 and level 2 of WSET with Maurizio and he's everything you could ask for in a teacher plus more. He lives and breathes wine, but not in a manner that is intimidating and overbearing. His thoroughness and knowledge are perfectly complemented by his quick and witty sense of humor. I have learned and managed to... More
